    21mm track question

    26" centres - taken at Athy - 8.67mm in 4mm.

    21mm track question

    It works out at 100" or 8'4" - in scale 33.33mm for 4mm. As regards spacing it varies a fair bit in those photos, but 32" centres appears to be a mean dimension - 10.67mm centres in scale. HTH. R.

    21mm track question

    Ken, I popped into Lenihans hardware in Dublin, bought a few long bolts and some nuts, total spend of €1.36 and have a few working 21mm track gauges. The ones from Scalefour only work on Code 75 track, so anything more exotic (this clown here is using code 100) requires a homemade solution.

    Have to say that the first image really got me when I saw the DNG "For Sale" poster and thought, "ooh, 475k for starters anyway...." I made up the ones below in 2012, and have higher resolution versions if of any interest. R.

    IRM CIE 20ft Container

    The containers are designed to the iso standards 1496 & 1161, and all their sub documents, that determine mounting points, lugs, openings, and all manner of exciting things. It's a design nightmare if I'm honest, but it's to the adopted guidelines. I strongly suspect that other manufacturers read the same documents and design accordingly. If they don't, designing something that was intentionally incorrect would not sit at all well with us. R.

    IRM CIE 20ft Container

    A couple of things... Broithes puns are getting severe, I may need an innoculation 😛 Second, the MPV cannot negotiate certain curves on the network, reason why it's parked up in Kildare so often. That's what happens when a narrow gauge manufacturer tries his hand at broad gauge...It'll never become the replacement weedsprayer. Third, there are two MK3 coaches below in inchicore slated for conversion to Per Way Duties, which may or may not happen. One was to be a crew van, the other a dispensing wagon, a restaurant and EGV conversion iirc. Last time I spied them they were growing algae....Now, til I get back in my cupboard researching hinges and locking bars on ISO containers and all manner of exciting things... the Gimp.

    From an architectural point of view, the capture of the buildings is stonking good. The trackwork even could pass for 21mm. I'm only looking at this on mobile, but I'm goddamened looking forward to seeing it on the big screen when I get home. This is epic good, and deserves a spread in a magazine. Love the fart box too! 😆 Richie

    GNR Signal Box

    I'd love a copy of those drawings too, if you could oblige @PaulC. I have some stock GNR signal cabin drawings, if Leslie is ok with me posting. R.

    CIE Locomotive Grey specification

    They are British Standard codes, for "Method for tensile testing of metals", and a "Specification for carbon steel forgings above 150 mm ruling section"... 18 B 29 is the colour code, from the BS 4800/5252 Colour Range, and is described as "Raven". Where is she now, would love to throw the RAL cards up against her to get a number.

    Bray late 50s and Hill

    If this is the location on google maps, they appear to be two remnants of piers for a bridge. I've guesstimated the old alignment on the 1948 O.S. Maps and it appears to line up. (Holding down CTRL whilst in google maps allows free orbiting or the camera.)

    8 Ton Coal Wagon Drawings

    The missing brake gear half is a bit of a nuisance all right, but you could easily scale the drawings. Thanks for posting, love the old planked stock.

    IRM’s first loco announcement!

    All of the above included, but strictly 21mm, along with a "static" model for just the frames in use as a bridge on a golf course, which should be a big seller. Rumours abound that they tested the Black and Tan on it also, so we'll get Noel on board at least.

    IRM’s first loco announcement!

    I assume the first paint colour was stock Steam Loco Grey? Whatever they had to spare? The second shot is from a set of slides that I spotted on eBay, and was keen to acquire, only for a certain Weshty to hoover it up! R.

  21. I suspect that shot of 460 is taken in the location indicated below. Defo MGWR architecture. R

    Preorders of IRM Tara Mines Wagon begin this weekend

    Shem, A rib of evergreen styrene across the body, and some packing out of the inner side strakes should be easy enough. The strakes are, funny enough, the same dimensions that you will find with Evergreens strips... How that occurred, I've no idea. R.
